Martin extends Norwich stay

Norwich defender Russell Martin has signed a new three-year contract.
Scotland international Martin, 27, joined Norwich from Peterborough in January 2010 following a successful loan spell and was an integral part of the side which secured promotion to the top flight under former manager Paul Lambert.
"I am extremely delighted - everyone knows how I feel about playing for this football club," Martin said on www.canaries.co.uk.
"Since I first arrived here it has gone unbelievably well and I feel really settled in the area.
"I am happy playing for this club and I have got a great relationship with the players, staff and the supporters, and I'm just delighted to be here for another three years."
Norwich manager Chris Hughton feels the move repays the player for his services in helping keep the club in the Premier League again last season.
"It is about players earning a new deal and I am delighted to be extending Russell Martin's contract," said Hughton.
"Russ has played his full part not just in helping us to achieve our finishing position last season, but of course in the club's massive successes over the previous three seasons and he has certainly earned his new contract."
